WELCOME

TO THE WEB SITE OF THE

PEACHTREE-ATLANTA CHAPTER

CELEBRATING OUR 11TH YEAR

We are the Peachtree-Atlanta Chapter of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs. 

This site is dedicated to providing information about La Chaîne to our members 

and anyone else who  has an interest in gourmet food and fine wine. 

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION

 

The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is the largest gastronomic organization in the world and, in the second of its two karmas, can lay claim to being the oldest. The Society was originally founded in Paris in the year 1248, and today, more than 70,000 persons participate annually in its activities. Members include many of the crowned heads of Europe as well as other persons of highest talent and distinction. Bailliages (national chapters) in more than 130 countries coordinate their programs through the Chaîne's International Headquarters in Paris.

In the United States the Chaîne has approximately 145 local chapters with almost 7,000 members and associates. Our National Executive office is located in the Chaîne House at Fairleigh Dickenson University, 285 Madison Avenue, Madison, NJ   07940-1099

Underlying our phenomenal growth is our sense of purpose. That which distinguishes the Chaîne from other organizations involved in wine or food is the interrelation between amateur and professional. In the Chaîne, we strive for a balanced membership representing knowledgeable men and women who, due to their interest in learning or their more traveled backgrounds, are in a position to enjoy the pleasures engendered by good cuisine, good wine, and good company; world-renowned lecturers, authors, and critics; professionals involved in food preparation, service and administration in hotels and restaurants, and wine, food, and equipment suppliers. Other societies, by comparison, tend to promote the wines of a given region, restrict their membership to a single social stratum, or are active in a limited number of cities or countries.
